    Driver caught using mannequin to drive in carpool lane

    The Orange County Register 2 hours ago

    BREA, Calif. --

    A California driver has been cited for using a mannequin — not the required human being — to drive in the carpool lane.

    The Orange County Register reports (http://bit.ly/2d5N3Sh ) Brea police found the mannequin Wednesday inside a truck on the congested 57 freeway.

    The truck veered out of the carpool lane close to an officer's motorcycle. As the officer attempted to warn the driver to be careful, he noticed the passenger wasn't a passenger.

    Police say the driver acknowledged using the mannequin in the carpool lane for some time. The driver told police that he would now accept that he needs to sit in traffic like everyone else.

    California requires that a vehicle have a minimum of two people for carpool lanes. Driving alone requires a fine of at least $481.

    ___

    This story corrects that the driver was cited Wednesday, not Friday.

    Some guy in washington did that last year, only it was a cardboard cut-out of Dos Equis "MOST INTERESTING MAN."

    The cop laughed his ass off but still ticketed.

    Larry hired a prostitute on Curb Your Enthusiasm so he could use the carpool lane.

    Much Funnier.

    The mannequin should have gotten a ticket for no seatbelt.

    He should have had it's head in his lap and when he saw the cop, moved it up like she was worried she'd gotten caught. Give the cop a thumbs up and keep on driving.
